My husband and I found the parking to be a little difficult but the stay here was wonderful. Our room was huge and our bed was extremely comfortable. The hosts were very welcoming and gave us maps and great suggestions for places to visit. The breakfast every morning was delicious. The hosts were very personable. We really enjoyed our stay...

This B&B is right off of the train tracks, which was fantastic since we arrived by rail. Typically lodgings right around train tracks are fairly seedy, but thankfully that wasn't the case here. We were greeted with hospitality that did not end at the door. We were given loads of maps and given excellent advice for day trips and places... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for a night. The hosts welcomed us and made us feel right at home. A safe is available if you're scared about belongings like passports. Room was very clean. City centre is a 10 minute walk. Breakfast was delicious! We highly recommend them.

Make sure you follow instructions closely when driving through the narrow streets! We were greeted very nicely upon arrival and provided with a recommendation for dinner based on our cravings. Spacious and clean rooms (it is very close to a train station, but it didn't disturb my sleep). I would definitely stay here again!

Wonderfully comfortable accommodation. Fabulous hosts who went out of their way to provide brilliant tourist advice (including the nearest off licence open on a Sunday night!) and as for the vegetarian breakfast - paradise!! The bedroom was quirky in a great way - loved the amusing pictures on the walls. Ideal location we would definitely recommend it.
